Prepare suitable material.. I've chosen Boars tusk.. but walrus would be OK as well.. both are hard and yet very tough.. unlike hippo which would be hard but to brittle.. mammoth would be too porous and large grained.. . I think the pictures tell the story but if you've got any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

That's really cool Clive!!

How deep did you anchor these? Any good photos of the larger context of the finished work?

 

Thank you for sharing - I love intergrating different materials through inlay - this has been a nice treat.

I may have more questions if you don't mind.

Best wishes,

Magnus

Hi Magnus ans Karl.. thanks for your comments

 

That's really cool Clive!!

How deep did you anchor these? Any good photos of the larger context of the finished work?

 

Generally about 4 times the depth of the seen part.

 

Perhaps you missed it Magnus.. but I've posted pictures of the piece that this tutorial relates too in New Work forum..

 

http://www.thecarvingpath.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=1969

 

In that thread there are first 3 pics of my latest piece.. then later further down some more pictures.. hope it makes sense.

 

Regards

Clive

hi Clive, thank you for the photos. On your netsuke, i saw some little green pieces, like blades. You do that with the same way ?

Hello Clive,

Yes, I've been away a few days and I just now checked out your netsuke - I am so very happy to see your mellow side that allows you to photograph your work - I can now understand why you are hesitant - this work is so amazing even in photos that I have to believe it would truly blow my mind to see it in person. Thank you for sharing - it really does inspire.

Dare I ask how many hours this took? It is timeless in itself.

Thanks again,

Magnus
